the things you'll need: a saw, a coping saw, a wood file, a red thing, and some wood!

Step 2: Cut the wood

Basically, all I did was print off a photo of the sword and sketch it on to the wood and then got to work.
I discovered that cutting with the tools already stated is hard and takes ages so if you have a band-saw/jig-saw it a less stressy time.

The finished blade, I slimed it down on the band-saw to get rid of the knots and to make it more of a sword blade width
the handle will be up soon

Nice. I now know what a khopesh is. Great job, but you might want to wrap the handle in something or taper the edge a bit so it looks a bit better. Great idea though.
